U.S. to shorten length of visas for some Chinese citizens: White House

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Reuters) - The U.S. government plans to shorten the length of visas issued to some Chinese citizens as part of a strategy to prevent intellectual property theft by U.S. rivals, a White House official said on Tuesday.

The U.S. State Department will implement measures from June 11 to “enhance security for some Chinese visa applicants,” the official said.

The change would come as President Donald Trump’s administration attempts to crack down on what it says is theft of U.S. intellectual property by China.

“Going forward, a reduction in validity of some newly issued visas is part of the National Security Strategy to ensure that intellectual property is not transferred to our competitors,” the official said, referring to a document issued by the Trump administration in December.

The document said officials would consider restrictions on visas for science and technology students from some countries to ensure “intellectual property is not transferred to our competitors.”

Someone should ask the Pres how the contract for a multi billion dollar 10 mile addition of a third track on the Long Island Railroad was awarded to China Construction America. Payments of course made by American taxpayers.

So will the libtards run to court to block it for discriminating against the Chineese or do they only run to court to protect terrorists from Muslim Countries?
